  • If you enjoy watching the fastest horses run for BIG purses, visit Ruidoso Downs for the All American races, about Labor Day each year. Lots of racing to see, and if you care to wager, you can do that...  more »
  • There were no live races the days we were in ruidoso but we went to the casino and bar. Best bartender and BEST BLOODY MARY WEST OF THE PECOS!! Loved watching the telecasts of races going on elsewhere...  more »

  • Was such a fun place. We had not been to horse races in 40 years. Our daughter enjoyed learning how to read the race book and hot a quick lesson on odds. The weather was gorgeous with sun, rain and small hail. It made for a great August day. The establishment was easy to locate and entrance was a very short walk from free parking. The beer was cold and the bloody Mary's are outstanding. The folks working at the betting machines are VERY friendly and helpful in explaining for newbies like us. We will return again next year!
  • Went for the family day. Had a decent time. Family day specials ($1 hot dog, $1 popcorn, $1 chips) were nice. However, they'll get you with the drinks. Ordered 3 hotdogs ($3) and 4 bottles of water... the total was $15! The lady at the entrance said ice cream was included in the $1 family day special as well... But when we ordered 4 ice creams, the total was $16. Wasn't till we had them that we were told they weren't included. If you're not necessarily into betting on horse racing, the Family day is still worth it... just plan ahead... We'll know better for next time.
